Beyond The Freeway
The City of Duluth is planning to reconstruct all of the major roadways in Canal Park in 2025. By consolidating city-managed parking into one major facility, we open up opportunities for Canal Park to be more park and less parking. The stunning and historic architecture along Lake Avenue frames up an iconic view of the Lift Bridge, but the street itself leaves a lot to be desired. By including multimodal infrastructure, space for sidewalk cafes, and native plantings, this could easily become one of the most incredible streets in Minnesota while still serving the transportation needs of Park Point.
